Even Knowledge Has To Be In Fashion

Happy (belated) 60th Anniversary,Condorito!

Yesterday was Condorito's 60th anniversary.Since I grew up reading his comic books I just had to commemorate the day in one way or another (as a matter of fact,Condorito was one of the key influences that made me start drawing).
If you're wondering why I drew him like a classic image of Mickey Mouse it's just because Condorito was created in Chile as a response to Walt Disney's Three Caballeros characters.So this is my way of making the full circle.Or something like that.
